A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters (Song of Songs 4:15)A widespread Jewish custom known as mayim achronim is to wash the hands after a meal but before reciting grace after meals. The custom involves passing a small silver vessel filled with water and an accompanying silver dish, to greet the coming blessing with purity and splendor. The Margarita Small Mayim Achronim is shaped and sculpted in tribute to the work of Spanish Jewry’s silversmiths. Before their expulsion, Spain’s Jewish silversmiths had mastered a unique style of silver decoration using motifs of nature; emblems, intertwining vines, sculpted petals and flowers and this design recalls this style in all its color and elegance. This beautiful mayim achronim honors both this glorious heritage and beautifies your dinner table. The small size of this mayim achronim add value and prestige to this special piece of silverware.
The Margarita Silver Collection pays homage to the wares of Spanish Jewry, work which continued until their expulsion in 1492. The Jewelry crafted by Spanish Jews forms the basis for many of the holy objects we know today.
The Margarita Silver Collection is a delicate combination of unique motifs accompanied by Spanish themes: flowers, inter-twining vines and other representations of nature. Each piece in the Margarita Silver Collection is carefully hand-decorated by expert jewelers, meaning that each piece is individual and has its own unique charm. The pieces which comprise the Margarita Collection are known for an elegance and style which keeps alive the memories from our parents’ home.
